HISTORICAL MARKERS FOR MILITIA HILL

VOLUNTEER TO HELP WITH INSTALLING FOUR HISTORIC MARKERS ON MILITIA HILL

On Saturday, November 13th, we need volunteers to assist with the installation of four historic markers on Militia Hill. Militia Hill was the site of Fort Anderson during the Coal Creek War of 1891 and 1892. The battle between the Tennessee Militia and the Coal Creek miners was credited with abolishing the corrupt convict lease system throughout the southern United States. We have purchased four historic markers that we will install so the history of the site can be read by tourists who come to visit. Meet at Briceville School at 9:00 a.m. for carpooling to Militia Hill. We will be done by noon. More info on these activities is available on our web site at www.coalcreekaml.com or by calling Carol Moore at 865-584-0344 Ext. 102 or clmoore@geoe.com.
